Once a diseased bird met a pigeon,
while the later was flying in the sky.
Asked the former to the later,
that where was she flying to.
Replied the pigeon that she was going to
the heaven and would return after a few days.
Said the bird that she had no wings
and could not fly and was in pain.
Asked the bird to the pigeon,
to do her a favour.
And ask the god of heavens,
that when would her pain end!
Promising to the bird, off went the pigeon
high up in the sky soaring until she
reached the gates of heaven and
went inside it.
She met the God of heavens and told
about the plight of the bird.
God said that this would continue for
seven more years as is destined for the bird to suffer until then.
Dejected the pigeon asked for a remedy.
God said to tell the bird to always say
'I am grateful to you O Lord'
for whatever situation comes in her life!
Taking leave thus, went the pigeon back
and met the bird and
told her everything that God said to her.
Then she went away leaving the bird behind.
After eight days the pigeon was passing
over the bird's place when she saw
the bird smiling and feathers had grown on her,
And a small water body had appeared from
nowhere just next to the bird's place and
there was plenty of food for the bird to eat!
Astonished! the pigeon went to the
Heavens and asked the Lord that there
was suffering written in the fate of the bird
for seven more years, then how such
a change took place!
God said that as the bird was always
grateful to the Lord for all that
took place in her life, the seven years
of suffering was finished in just seven days!
We all curse god for all the problems in
our lives, but we are seldom grateful to
Him for the good and happy moments
of our lives!
We should be ever grateful to the Lord
for all that takes place and for all the
situations and thus incur His blessings!
